The public face of bioethics focuses on hot-button issues such as stem cell research, genetic privacy and physician-assisted suicide. These are, without doubt, critical issues. But larger policy questions are often neglected. This multidisciplinary lecture series examines a wide range of neglected issues—from the ethics of health care reform to the impact of industry and national security funding on biomedical research, from the effects of climate change on global health to the ethics of food choice.

The "Bioethics Without Borders" Lecture Series is being made possible, in part, by support from Richard B. Lippin and the late Ronnie Lippin; Bioethics and Medical Humanities ProgramCenter for Health and Risk Communication;  Center for Health Care and Policy ResearchCenter for Policy Research in Environment, Energy, and CommunityCollege of the Liberal ArtsDepartment of Biobehavioral HealthDepartment of Health Policy and AdministrationDepartment of Nutritional SciencesDepartment of PhilosophyDepartment of Women's Studies;  Huck Institutes of the Life SciencesPenn State College of Medicine's Department of HumanitiesPenn State Dickinson School of LawPenn State ForumPenn State Institutes of Energy and the EnvironmentPremedicine and Science ProgramsScience, Technology and Society Program; and University Libraries.
